After i downloaded Serif free movie software and the correct driver software, (Do not use the drivers that come with the device, they won`t work.) I did a search online and used trial and error before i found the correct one that worked for me. Once i got the correct drivers, the device worked exceptionally well. I am converting old VHS onto usb flash cards for the inlaws and this is ideal, but be patient, it does take some time.

I bought this capture device to digitise some old video-8 camcorder tapes. The drivers and software installed without any issues on Windows 7 64-bit. The ShowBiz software is a bit basic but it will probably be OK for most people. I decided to use VirtualDub instead which is a lot more complicated but allows you to add deinterlacing filters to remove the "comb effect" caused by interlacing, and capture raw uncompressed video for offline encoding. For this it did an excellent job and the video quality is as good as you can expect from old tapes. I'm sure it would work just as well for VCR tapes too.

The short pigtails on the USB adaptor need a gender conversion lead to connect them to the video source. In the box is a 3-way cable with phono plugs for audio and composite video. However there is no m-m adaptor for the 4 pin s-video connector. This is a bit cheap of the manufacturers as an additional cable has now had to be bought at extra cost. At the very least this omission needs to be mentioned in the product description.

I found our old Sharp VLH400H video camera and a stack of tapes so I wanted to digitise them. This seemed a good cheap option. I had nightmares with the supplied CD of drivers and software too. In the end I did a system restore to before any of the August/Showbiz was installed and then installed the drivers and software from idaffodil co uk. I connected the video to the USB using an S-Video lead and selected Audio PIN for the audio source. This all worked a treat and was able to transfer all my tapes onto my PC.
At the end of the day the hardware side is fine - cables, USB etc. - but the supplied software and support is not so good. I never received a reply to an email enquiry to August about the "Device is not available, or being used by another application" message. I think, but I'm not 100% sure, that inbuilt web cams might cause the conflict.
Bottom line is that it's worth a twenty quid punt as it's cheaper than having it done by sending the tapes away.

I took a gamble on this after reading mixed reviews however all is well and I'm glad I did.
Reading the other reviews I think it is key that your PC / Laptop has sufficient performance in terms of processor, graphics card (or on board GPU) and memory and of course disk space. My Windows 7 Media PC was fine in this respect but an older, underpowered PC is going to stuggle a lot. Don't take the manufacturer's minimum specs literally, you need more power than that!
Worked fine with the drivers supplied on the mini CDROM using the simple instructions provided to install the drivers and ArcSoft Video editing and DVD creation software.
I am using this to transfer old Video 8 tape footage to DVD and it does this job for me just fine. Resulting Video quality is good enough. Comparible to playing the Video 8 tapes from the camcorder straight to the TV, very little quality lost (again I think this depends on how good your PC is).
The ArcSoft software itself, I have used before. It is a bit clumsy and not intuative and I had to re-teach myself how to edit the caputred videos and create DVD "projects" that can then be burnt to DVD. I don't think this software would be good for complex editing and DVD creation however if you simply want to stransfer old footage to DVD with minimal editing and simple menus then this ArcSoft software is fine. If you want to do more complex editing and DVD creation then you can still use this solution to capture the footage as MPEG and then use different software to edit and create the DVDs.
My only gripe is the DVD burning time looks to be "real time", i.e. 45 mins of footage takes 45 mins to burn to DVD. Zzzzzzzz!
All in all I am happy with this and it has saved some old footage as old Video 8 tapes do degrade and I actually had to fix some that snapped during capturing! Great little gizmo!

I think the August VGB100 is a great device and represents fantastic value for money. I was delighted with the ArcSoft ShowBiz software that came with the device on mini CD. The help available on the web for ArcSoft ShowBiz 3.5 the version I have is not good but the help file that comes with the software is all I needed really. It did take me a few hours of study before I could use all the editing capability of the software but I was able to capture the video from a VHS tape played on a VCR very fast. I was lucky to have had a SCART to three phono lead to connect the SCART output on the VCR to the VGB100. I also discovered that to see the ArcSoft GUI properly I had to set my monitor to the highest resolution. Do this by going to Control Panel>System>Settings.
I recommend this great video capture device. I had a little hiccup when my Windows XP became unstable during the first transfer. Windows XP signaled the device was not recognized. There was no problem though with the VGB100 at all and after I switched off the PC a few times that problem resolved itself whatever it was.
